On July 22, the group "Brainstorm" will conclude their two-year concert tour "Year Without a Calendar" at the Daugava Stadium in Liepāja.
As before, this year's concert in Liepāja is organized with responsible use of natural resources in mind. In collaboration with the sustainability partner of the concert tour, "Neste," the group encourages attendees to digitally store their purchased concert tickets on their smart devices and present them digitally at the entrance instead of printing them. Deposit drink cups and waste sorting points will be available at the event. Additionally, the more environmentally friendly "Neste MY" renewable diesel fuel will be used for electricity production, and there will be a bicycle parking area provided by the insurance and technology company "Balcia" near the concert venue in Liepāja.
The group invites concert attendees to familiarize themselves with the latest information about the concert at the Daugava Stadium in Liepāja:
